As a followup to our post earlier last week, Executive Director Kris Ekeren reached out to the RC Ombudsman Committee and informed us that the US Fencing national office does track black card sanctions, in the following statement:
The USA Fencing National Office currently tracks black cards given at national events as well as those received in the office from regional and local events. The USA Fencing Ethics Committee will receive reporting on black cards activity. The Ethics Committee has the authority to recommend a disciplinary panel or request an additional review from the USA Fencing Board of Directors for individuals who have been black-carded on one or more occasions.
We appreciate that she reached out and was kind enough to let us publish her statement.
